    Conrado's Bio:
    Born and raised in urban Madrid, lived in rural northern California and ended up in snowy suburban Minnesota. During the school year you'll find me firmly entrenched in a routine designed to develop my Psychology research skills, and during the summer you will probably not find me at all; in my free time, I enjoy going on trekking trips in the backcountry, adventuring through recondite countries and most importantly spending time with my family.

DNA Extraction

For my chemistry class, we were offered some extra credit in exchange of doing a DNA extraction on our own. The course is divided up in general, organic and biochemistry, and we are finally getting to the final stages of the course. It is surprising to learn how simple extracting DNA can be. Apparently, you only need to blend the material from which you want to extract DNA, mix it with soap and alcohol, and you’re done! The white, sticky, silky stuff floating around is pure DNA. How cool is that? It keeps amazing me how applicable chemistry is!
